He said, "No, it's quite a common term for deceptive plays and tricky maneuvering."
Of course, right to the dictionary for me. "Juke" is derived from the Gullah dialect (jook, juke, or jouk) ) which translated means "deceptive", "disorderly", or "wicked".
JUKE JOINT: a roadside cafe or bar which featured drinking, eating, music, dancing, and sometimes prostitution.
JUKE BOX: Because live music was expensive, bringing in phonographs and records to the "juke joints" became popular, and eventually, coin-operated machines replaced the phonographs.
JUKING: To outmaneuver by a feint or other deceptive movement; to make a move intended to deceive.
JUKE DANCING: A suggestive dance where, usually, a female's butt is moved against a male's crotch (called "Chicago Juking").
